    help compling with Dev-C++

    i try to compile my program and i get this error

    114 sourcecode.cpp
    request for member `setPlayerInfo' in `human', which is of non-aggregate type `Player ()()'

    what's going on??

    human is an instance of a class i made
    setPLayerInfo is a regular public member function

    okay

    class declaration, constructor, and member function are here, as well as the call to the funciton

    Code:
    // Player class declaration
    class Player
    {
     private:
             char      playerName;
             short int hitpoints;
             short int strength;
             short int agility;
             short int magic;
             short int gold;
     public:
             Player();                  // constructor
                                        // no destructor
             void reportStats();        // shows stats
             void attack();             // kill monster
             void move();               // move N, E, S, or W (do i need parameters?)
             void rest();               // sleep to regain health
             void setPlayerInfo();      // name, sex
             void showPlayerInfo();         // for debugging only
    };
    
    
    Player::Player()    // constructor definition
    {
     playerName = new char[20];
     strcpy(playerName, "Brian");
     strength = 10;
     agility = 10;
     hitpoints = 10;
     magic = 20;
     gold = 20;
    }
    
    
    void Player::setPlayerInfo()
    {
        clrscr();
        displayTitle();
    
    	std::cout << "What is your name, young traveler?: ";
    	std::cin >> playerName;
    }
    here is the call to the function, which is in main()
    Code:
     human.setPlayerInfo();  // gets playerName and sex

    I see the problem, you declared "human" with the following line:

    Code:
    Player human();
    Leave out the () part; those are only there if you are not using a default constructor and instead are using one which takes parameters.

    P.S.: I must say, that's an interesting idea for a story.

    He's right.

    Here are a couple of tips:

    Add two variables to the class, x and y, which will hold the current position of the player, then:



    Code:
    void Player::moveVert(int units)
    {
     char *direction = (units < 0) ? "South" : "North";
     y += units;
     std::cout << playerName << " Has Moved" << units << " Steps To The " << direction << endl;
    }
    
    
    
    void Player::moveHoriz()
    {
     char *direction = (units < 0) ? "West" : "East";
     x += units;
     std::cout << playerName << " Has Moved" << units << " Steps To The " << direction << endl;
    }

    Find out how to capture the arrow keys with _getch(); This way you can use them to control the player.


    Also, in a constructor you can initialize variables en masse like this:

    Code:
    
    Player::Player(char *name = "New Player") //...default name...
    :x(0), y(0), strength(10), agility(10), hitpoints(10), magic(20), gold(20)
     {
      playerName = new char[50];
      strcpy(playerName, name);
     }

    Good luck on your game!
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }
